As a family, we decided to simplify our lifestyle and sell many of our things and move to Mexico.
Why move to Mexico? Some retire in Mexico, others simply want a different lifestyle, but for us, it was different. We wanted to do volunteer work as a family and spend more time together. Also, as owner of a tech company, I was able to work remotely using technologies that we implement. We lived here for 5 years and loved it. The kids call it home and so do we, as we regularly return to see our friends and have tacos on the street! Living in Mexico has it challenges but many rewards.
Many ask why we returned. One of our kids had health issues that is now well taken care of and managed back in Canada.
Apart from the weather, one of the first things you realize is how hospitable the Mexican people are. I also find it nice to be away from suburban shopping strip malls and constant advertising that if we don’t own it all now, we won’t be happy. When you simplify your life and enjoy experiences rather then things, that is how you gain true happiness. Pair that with helping the community and you discover that life in Mexico is quite good.
Imagine if you have to retire, and have limited means…in Mexico, your money goes a long way if you are careful.
If you are Canadians or Americans thinking of moving to Mexico, this site will show you how to make this move a success.
We have learned so much along the way, and we are always happy to share the knowledge!
